Our idea of safety

I ignored safety.
You mean…
You didn’t use……protection?
Huh!
Don’t tell me you didn’t.
You okay? Just be careful next time.
I ignored safety. I crushed a man under my car.
Relax. It happens. Let’s figure a way out of this.

I ignored safety.
DID YOU CROSS THE TRACKS AGAIN?
THIS IS IT.
Huh!
Don’t tell me you did it.
Promise me you’ll not do anything that can put you in danger.
I ignored safety. I crushed a man under my car.
Poor baby. Don’t worry about it. We will protect you.

I ignored safety.
You didn’t install antivirus software?
Tell me you have saved your work.
Huh!
Don’t tell me you haven’t.
Make it a practice to be safe, always.
I ignored safety. I crushed a man under my car.
Did anybody witness it? It’ll take forever to prove anyway.

I ignored safety.
Are you doing it again?
Smoking up with those guys, are you?
Huh!
Don’t tell me you are.
Assure me you will stay away from it and them.
I ignored safety. I crushed a man under my car.
I know you’re not wrong. The lawyers will save you.

I was safe. I followed the rules.

I am gone, save for a few pieces in papers.

Nicely done..
Our apathetic state of affairs...our concerns our cause. So twisted.
